"The 40+ Watt Garage" (New Location)
Permalink  
 


Our new house pushed all the right buttons except the attached garage sucks. It's really only good for parking a car & lawn tractor.

One of the "deals" Sheryl & I struck was we'd build a detached shop/garage. It'll be big enough to store the boat, my pickup, the Roadster, and Blackie - with enough space for benches and a work area.

Finished dimensions will be 32' wide, 36' deep, 10' ceilings. (We had to go with 10' ceilings due to restrictions from the city.) The old 40 Watt had 9'8" ceilings, and a lift can work in there, so I'll be happy.+

They broke ground yesterday.

Exciting times. Is that PEX tubing I see on top of the foam?

Yessir... The new shop will have radiant in-floor heat.

Can you do a vaulted ceiling over the lift stall? Looking forward to a visit!

Not with the truss system on this building... One of the city restrictions is that the "outbuilding" needs to match (in appearance/style) the main house, and cannot be taller than it. One of the parameters is we wanted attic storage in the garage. The house has NONE... it's vaulted to the rafters ceiling on 90% of the main level. There's nowhere to stash/store "stuff" in the house - unlike the Quebec house which had garage attic storage. We've already had to alter the roof pitch on the new garage to accomodate the City, and to maintain storage in its attic "vaulting" isn't possible. (After 40yrs. of crawling like a reptile under ramps & jackstands, just being able to sit on a roller stool under a car will be a luxury.)

I’ve learned that a high percentage of things I have in storage will never be used. In fact I spend a great deal of time now trying to dispose of it.

 Ain't that the truth!

I've been pretty lax on updates with the construction...

Gonna have to change the name to 100 watt garage for this one. Looks like good progress considering the weather. It will nice to get the roof on so you can quit shoveling out the garage.

 Or LED garage.

Have you decided on a boiler for the floor heat?

Non condensing? Didn’t know that was an option. I spent a lot of time last winter dealing with my drain freezing due to the condensation from the boiler. My boiler puts out 5 gallons of water a day.

 I'd be running the hose into a 5 gallon pail and throwing it outside.

In my previous shop, I had heat tape out to the catch box in the ground and plugged that in when we were going to wash vehicles in the winter. It works...

Not much to update... Builder's going through some BS with the inspector about "as submitted/approved" vs. what's there... (that's his problem) Sparky's have been in, and have 90% of the rough-in done. Boxes are placed, light cans installed, etc. Insulators are scheduled for Monday to do the 1" spray-foam on the inside. This is in lieu of "Tyvek" or a "wrap". This'll seal the outer sheathing directly to the studs, add rigidity. What's cool about it is that you can still get down the wall if you need to. The remaining space will be fiberglass batts.
